Ade Safe After Togo Team Bus Attacked

Ade Safe After Togo Team Bus Attacked



A shocking terrorist attack on the Togo team bus in Angola in the run up to the African Nations Cup has left a number of players wounded. Emmanuel Adebayor is unhurt...

Gunmen opened fire on the Togo team with machine guns in the Angolan territory of Cabinda where rebels have been fighting for independence after the bus crossed from the Republic of Congo.

The bus driver was killed in the attack which lasted for 20 minutes with the players hiding under their seats as best they could.

A terrible incident and our best wishes are with the City striker and his team mates at this time.

when the ACN was announced a lot of player's were sceptical as to why Angola was chosen to host it, as they were scared something was going to happen, the authorities have to have a long hard look at why this TRAGEDY happened, even cancel the whole tournament.... best wishes to the injured and my condolences to the family of the murdered driver..... totally unnesessary and tragic loss...

What a horrible thing to happen. My thoughts with the family of the bus driver and thankful that nobody else was killed .... and yes, that means Ade too. We gooners may think he's not a very nice chap, but that doesn't mean I'd want to see him harmed.

I personally find it amazing that they travelled by coach. Even if the togo FA didnt have money, surely between the players they would pay to fly. The fact that tournament is behind held in one of the most dangerous countries in the world is a joke. I hope everyone is ok and that the tournament is violence free.

Yeah, Rocky7, maybe you don't want to see Adebayor harmed, but a lot of Arsenal fans do. On a lighter note, Patrick Viera has signed for City??? WTF! If i were you i would try buying players who were at their peak this side of the millenium.

regarding this sickening thing - they need to cancel this tourny and get the players back to there countries and clubs because this shouldnt ever happen because its not about sport its about *****heads thinking they can do what they want and its innocent people who suffer.
